I've been musing about how indoor routes are set. I know there are courses and associations for route setters, but are there some principles behind it all? Seems to me that on the walls I frequent, easier routes = bigger holds, more holds and closer together, and harder routes = smaller holds, fewer of them and further apart.
This is not quite how real outdoor routes are, or is it?
And are indoor routes set with leading or top-roping in mind?
Most route-setters will climb harder than I can, so can they set easier routes that are satisfying and challenging?
Feedback from route setters and wall users welcome!
